What is Tapping?
Tapping, also known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), is a powerful self-help tool. EFT is based on the idea that all of our emotions, thoughts and physical conditions have an energy associated with them. Tapping techniques are used to activate specific meridian points in the body, releasing blockages and restoring balance to the body’s energy system.
As one of the simplest and most effective forms of self-care available today, tapping allows us to take control of our own health and wellbeing. By using simple finger taps while focusing on a particular issue or emotion, we can release stress from our anxieties at their source. Through this process we gain insight into our current state of being and can begin to make real changes in our lives by shifting mental patterns, strengthening emotional resilience and improving overall wellbeing.
If you’re looking for a way to reduce stress in your life, tapping could be just the thing. Tapping is an easy technique that anyone can learn and use in their own home. EFT is becoming increasingly popular among those suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, or stress-related conditions as it’s a quick and simple way of providing relief.
How Does Tapping Work?
Tapping involves using your fingertips to tap on various points on your body while repeating affirmations or mantras to yourself. This helps to release tension from the body and mind by reducing cortisol levels – the hormone responsible for causing stress – in the bloodstream. With regular practice, this modality can help bring long-term relief from stress and anxiety symptoms including insomnia, depression, headaches, fatigue and more.
Benefits of Tapping for Stress Relief
The idea behind tapping is simple: when we experience emotional distress or physical pain, these feelings are caused by an imbalance in our body’s energetic system. This can be caused by traumatic experiences, negative thoughts or beliefs and even food sensitivities. To restore balance to your body’s natural energy state, I believe, as a Tapping Practitioner, that tapping on certain points on your face and body while focusing on specific issues can help reduce stress levels and improve overall health.
Preparing for a Tapping Session
If you’re new to EFT, it can seem intimidating at first glance. However, once you understand the basics, you’ll find that there really isn’t much to prepare to start a tapping session. It is simple and straightforward. All you need are a few minutes of peace and quiet in a comfortable environment so you can focus on your tapping and feel calmer afterwards. Start by tuning into how you’re feeling emotionally – anxious? Worried? Stressed? Sad?
Practicing the Technique
Tap on the points while vocalizing negative emotions to release them and saying positive affirmations to close out.
If you’re new to this, it’s best to start by learning the basics of the technique. Watch instructional videos online or sign up for a session. Once you know how to tap correctly, practice makes perfect! Take some time each day to focus on yourself – if something is bothering you, Tap On It!
What to expect after Tapping
A session can be a life-changing experience and can have an immediate effect on how you feel. Of course, the effects won’t last forever – but that doesn’t mean they won’t stay with you in some way. You may clear one aspect of the issue and need to clear other aspects in the future.
After a session, it’s quite common to feel lighter and more relaxed than before. You may also find yourself feeling more confident or having improved clarity when thinking about certain issues. As you integrate your new insights, it is important to remember that the results will often come gradually over time. It’s not uncommon to even forget what was discussed during a session – but don’t worry! That could be your subconscious mind doing its job, as long as you take note of any changes in thought patterns or feelings after the session.
Harnessing the Power of Tapping
Tapping has proven to be a powerful tool for managing stress, releasing negative emotions, and restoring balance. From the physical to the mental and emotional, it is clear that tapping can have real and lasting effects on our lives. Even if you’re not sure it will work for you, there’s no harm in giving it a try! Who knows-you may find an unexpected source of relief and peace of mind. So why not given it a try? You just might find yourself pleasantly surprised.
